“A1C Spencer Stone has been transported to a local hospital, and is currently being treated for injury,” Air Force spokesman Lt. Col. Christopher Karns said in an email in Air Force Times. “The incident is currently under investigation by local law enforcement. He is currently in stable condition.”
A Sacramento TV station reported on the stabbing but did not include the victim’s name. The stabbing happened about 12:45 a.m. on Thursday on a Sacramento street corner.
The victim suffered “multiple stab wounds to the torso,” KCRA‑TV reported. Police initially did not think the stabbing victim would survive and began treating the incident as a homicide investigation, but it now appears that the victim will pull through.
Although the Air Force has identified Stone as the stabbing victim, Sacramento police have not officially named the person who was stabbed.
